White Gate Farm: East Lyme, CT
The Co-op purchases a variety of produce from White Gate Farm throughout the year, delicious fresh tomatoes and greens in the summer and hearty squashes throughout the winter.
In their own words:
"Ruth Lord purchased White Gate Farm in 1975. In 1999 her daughter and son-in-law, Pauline Lord and David Harlow, moved from California to create the farm business, which has been certified organic since 2000. Three of the farm's acres are now used for growing organic produce, for pasturing organic turkeys, meat chickens and laying hens, and for raising organic flowers."
"White Gate Farm's mission is to provide healthy, delicious and beautiful food and to strengthen the ties between consumers, their food, and the farms that produce it."
